"Problems find its way to the solutions" is correctly phrased proverb these days. Increasing price of fuel is something that every person nowadays is critically affected within one or the other way.

Presently, great news that would surely soothe the wound of fuel price hike has surfaced. The credit goes to the genius scientist from Jaipur, Prof Y K Vijay, Director of Center for Development of Physics Education at University of Rajasthan, has brilliantly found an easy and affordable way to increase the fuel efficiency of a car using his personal old vehicle Nissan Sunny 1988 model as his subject for the experiment.

Indian scientist claims water can increase car's mileage!

This apparatus, Catalytic Fuel Production Kit, will subsequently decrease the fossil fuel intake as it would generate combustible hydrogen fuel that will contribute to the fuel bulk and provide extra component of hydrogen for combustion than only the petrol or diesel resulting less use of fossil fuel for a particular distance to travel.

The demo structure of the experiment is incorporated in a white Nissan Sunny with a green roof sheet over it for the necessary cooling effect.

He has been using this car with the fuel kit from one and half year. In its present state, the kit costs around Rs 10,000.

All these processes work upon the simple principle of water electrolysis. Hydrogen atoms are highly combustible and these are extracted from water through water electrolysis.

The electrolyte that Vijay uses is the easily available common salt and as per him it the best that can be used in this kit. The hydrogen is mixed with the fuel through air filter.

In an interview with Carkhabri.com this brilliant scientist, Vijay confirmed that his patent is initially targeted to reduce ill-effects of pollution that a car makes and to increase the fuel efficiency along with it. This kit can be set up on any engine that uses petrol or LPG fuelling. However, its adaptability with the diesel engine is still under evaluation.

This magical kit is a boon to a country like India where both pollution and increasing fuel price are prime issues that are still unsorted. To curb the severity the research and development section of every automobile manufacturing company is extensively working over it by either through innovation processes of the existing technology or inventing new ones.

Most car companies are introducing automatic transmission technology for better mileage return and optimum control in almost every new car that is yet to come this year and also in 2013.

Indian scientist claims water can increase car's mileage!

Image: Indians are taking leap in scientific researches and have proved themselves with numerous examples.

New Ford Fiesta, Tata Aria, Tata Safari Storme are few car models that are perfect examples that state the interests of the car makers to deliver eco-friendly and fuel efficient cars. All these gestures show that more emphasis is made to bring out strategies to eradicate fuel and pollution related problems.

Blessed with great intellect and sharp brains, Indians are taking leap in scientific researches and have proved themselves with numerous examples. Hopefully, with the sanction of this project now, India will find a new hope towards the path of economical as well as ecological advantages that this country craves for such a long time.
